  1. My exchange recipient this spring was Evilhalfling and he was looking for an example of monochrome. Now I'm certainly no expert on it, but my first attempt worked out ok so I figured I'd give it a shot, and I'd just recently ordered a Rowena for myself (which I still need to remember to order again) and I figured all the layers and textures would make for an interesting exercise in monochrome. (Note to anyone starting out in monochrome, do not start with a figure with a whole much of different layers and textures.... ). She was a challenge for me but in the end I think she came out
  2. 36" from tip to props, The Rim Greaper is a VSF/Steampunk Victorian SciFi flying ironclad ship built from a plastic aircraft carrier toy. In-universe, flight is achieved by electrically charging the Unobtanium plating on the hull, the arc cannons on deck work off the same principle, and the Aetheric Lance on the prow works because the Story Says It Does. She was comissioned by Her Majesty's Royal Navy, constructed by barrister-turned shipwright Sir Andrew St. George, and assisted by the local Mechanaether Guild. Construction took about three weeks of evenings, and painting took may
  3. Sometimes the paint gets away from you and you have to call them done before it gets any worse. Lord Robert Delabrough and Lady Sarai St. George, intended to lead Her Majesty's 2nd Martian Regiment of Foot "Delabrough's Immortals".
  4. Hinterland Miniatures' Schutztruppen, here painted as Australian Free Martian Company, Women's Division. ...or at least, that's what they claim.
  5. Lady Helen Quartermain and her airship privateers / art thieves / operatives for the British Museum, ca. 188--. Painted for the game "In Her Majesty's Name." Speedpainted, all of them, over the weekend during downtimes at the hotel in Augusta.
  6. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1328500402/blindsprings-volume-1-by-kadi-fedoruk This is the collected volume of the first couple of years of "Blindsprings", a webcomic by Kadi Fedoruk, who is also a designer for the Canadian cartoon show "Nerds and Monsters". I've only recently found the comic. It seems to be a beautifully drawn sorcerous steampunk world with some fairy tale background.
  7. This is one of a set of three armored cars, the "Specter Armored Cars" from the "All Quiet on the Martian Front" game. They are 15mm scale, said to be based on the Rolls Royce Spectre. I am painting them up for steampunk use. I think they are lead. They seemed pretty soft and bendy anyhow. They came in several pieces without instructions and it took a few tests to see how and what order to put the pieces together. The underbody chassis is just a little tricky and you can't put the wheels on until the rest is assembled. I left the turret unglued. It's on a post so it can rotate
  8. Presenting the Biocognator Golem from Wolsung, a steampunk robot piloted by a pair of lab mice who are determined to take over the world. There is a WIP thread for it here. Biggest lesson I've learnt painting this one? Don't use Vallejo Gunmetal Blue as a main colour! There's a nicely detailed mini in there somewhere, but the metallic blue just makes the whole thing too dark when photographed. As least it looks fairly good in hand. Any comments and criticisms are, as always, warmly received.
  9. Hi everyone, I wanted to show you all my latest sculpt and get your feedback. I am trying to *redacted* miniatures. Maybe some day *redacted*. Right now Gen. Brookwater is in the last stages before *redacted*. Still need to nail down the casting method and the material. But, hopefully, in the fall of 2016 or so *redacted*. But now is your chance to let me know what you like, what you don't like, what you'd prefer to see. Because, for the time being, changes can still be made! I'll be posting updates as time goes on and soon will have a youtube video up so you can really se
  10. Reaper Bones #80027 "Nightslip," converted with two "flintlock" pistols and some "brown stuff" epoxy putty: I saw this figure from Privateer Press, and at some point thought, "I could probably paint "Nightslip" up to look like that!" Having a gun in each hand helped -- but they weren't QUITE the right sort of guns. (Reference image from Privateer Press site.) Basically, it just boiled down to painting a lot of what (I suppose) would be skin on the Bones mini as cloth instead, swapping out the pistols, and then -- for bonus points -- adding a little extra putty to bulk out t
  11. This is another Bones miniature designed by Jason Wiebe — 80001: Ape-X. I think that a gorilla's skin would tend to be blacker than this, but that made it very monochromatic, so I browned it up a bit. And here it is again, photographed from every angle, just in case you really need to know what it would look like from a rear three-quarter view.
  12. In our current Iron Kingdoms / Unleashed RPG campaign, after my Nyss priest got one-shotted (and rolled 1-1-2 on the injury table -- a very bad thing, in case you aren't familiar with the rules) in our first combat, the GM came up with the idea that we each should have backup characters, just in case someone gets obliterated, or suffers another "Slow Recovery" result (as I did) and ends up effectively bedridden for long periods of game time while the plot demands that the others keep adventuring. I was inspired by a Hordes model, the Gobber Tinker. (Reference image.) ... And
  13. Presenting a Steampunk Nikola Tesla, wearing a snazzy mecha-suit. This is my 2nd finished mini of the year (though technically I started him last year), and has a small WIP here. Not too happy with this one, found it difficult to really do anything special with all the machine parts and quickly lost interest in him. I do think his trousers and face came out pretty good though. As always any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  14. Reaper Bones 77204 "Cassiatta" (92609 from KS II) converted with spare arms from "Grind" board game, random 40K Ork bitz, and wire I went through the Bones gallery and pinned this down as 77204 "Cassiatta" (AKA 92609 from the Bones II Kickstarter). I guess it's supposed to be a Dark Elf warrior, given the pointy ears and pointy just-about-everything and general "nasty" vibe. Original Mini from Gallery: I had some brief musings of painting such a figure up humorously with lots of stitches and scars on the suspiciously-exposed patches of elf flesh (as contrasted with the HUGE
  15. Introducing our intrepid hero, Dr. Charles Bennet. As you see, he is quite recovered from his adventure in Egypt and the unfortunate affair with the Emperor's crocodiles.
  16. Among several bouts of re-purposing old Mage Knight minis, re-basing generic critters with IKRPG-friendly bases, and general kit-bashing over my extended holiday weekend (yay!), I attempted to make use of a Micro Art Studio "Wolsung" mini (#33 -- Phoenix) as a Nyss hero. I'm a fan of Micro Art Studio resin bases, but this is the first I've gotten from their miniatures line. My feelings are mixed. Assembly was surprisingly smooth for a multi-part figure: The parts consisted of the main body, a piece with the weapon and hands/fore-arms, and a ponytail. The ponytail segment, once I tri
  17. Here is Capt. Amelia Steam from Scale 75. It's 75mm and all metal. The basic sculpt was fine, but I thought the hair was a bit 'ropey'. Overall good casting - no short shots or pitting in my piece, but there was some trash in the hair. The pipes going from the arms to the jet-pack must be bent to fit. Floquil Model Railroad Gray Primer (brushed on) and Reaper MSP acrylics. Questions and comments are welcomed; no secrets here... Cheers, Glen
  18. Another finished Wolsung mini, this time it's the Sumo Wrestler from the Triad faction. Super annoyed I didn't spot that thumbprint on his base until after I'd got him attached, but I think the mini itself turned out really well. As always, any comments and criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  19. My exchange partner for the 2015 Fall Exchange was Tarsemina. Steampunk was the first thing on her list, and something I quite like myself, so from there it was just a matter of picking a Reaper fig that spoke to me. This figure is awesome, although she needs a real name, something besides, "Mad Scientist (female)" . As a proper mad scientist on the dangerous streets of London (I've been readying the background book for Infamy lately...) I thought she needs some companions. The dog is an Infernium Hound from West Wind's Empire of the Dead line. And her adorable "por
  20. Presenting the Ogre Coffin-bearer, part of the Scylla faction in Wolsung. Decided to go really colourful and comic-booky with him, and I think it worked. Spats turned out to be surprisingly difficult to paint though. Any comments or criticisms are, as always, most appreciated.
  21. For your amusement. These guys used to come two to a blister, but only come in ten-packs now. Thing 1 Thing 2 As always, c&c welcome! (You know, the more I use that smiley, the more smug it looks. I like it.)
  22. This is the regular Malifaux Whiskey Golem, WYR20603 (not the "Nightmare Whiskey Golem" WYR21015 which has a slightly different pose and extra goblin figures). My husband gave it to me for my birthday as part of a selection of minis which could be used for steampunk. As he said, "It's a wooden robot!" This is the first plastic figure model I've put together, and only the second plastic model. Many thanks to the Reaper forumites who suggested glues to use, as my tube of hardware store Duco Plastic Model Cement was way too gloppy and crude for the fine detail of this model. Thanks t
  23. Presenting Vito Vendetta, the undead Halfling mobster from Micro Art Studios Wolsung. Painted him purely to try out my new rust paints on his chains, probably should've chosen something simpler for a first attempt, but I think they turned out pretty good, as has the mini overall. As always, any comments or criticisms are greatly appreciated.
  24. For my exchange partner this time around I was assigned Traxia. So if you are reading this and haven't opened your package, stop now! When going through Traxia's answers to the questionnaire, the moment I saw "Chronoscope" I knew what I was going to paint even though it's not made by Reaper. Maow makes affordable resin minis in limited runs and I just so happen to have a few of them. One in particular is the awesome steampunk figure "Johnny Rocket." There were only 400 made, but if you want one there are still a few left out in the wild. Better hurry though, before another forumite g
